I told you how your hurt me, baby
But you don't care
Now I'm crying and deserted, baby
But you don't care
Ain't nobody tell me this is love
But you're immune to all my pain
I need you to tell me this is love
You don't care, well that's okay

Well, I care
I know you don't care too much
But I still care, la la la la la, la la la la la la

Oh, I care
I know you don't care too much
But I still care, la la la la la, la la la la la la

Ever since you knew your power
You made me cry
And now everytime our love goes sour
You won't sympathize
You see these tears falling down to my ears
I swear you like when I'm in pain
I try to tell you all my fears
You still don't care? That's okay

Well, I care
I know you don't care too much
But I still care, la la la la la, la la la la la la
Oh, I care
I know you don't care too much
But I still care, la la la la la, la la la la la la

Boy, maybe if you cared enough
I wouldn't have to care so much
What happened to our trust?
Now you've just given up
You used to be so in love
Now you don't care no more

Well, I care
I know you don't care too much
But I still care, la la la la la, la la la la la la
Oh, I care
I know you don't care too much
But I still care, la la la la la, la la la la la la

    The meaning of this song is your significant other has kind of fallen out of love with you, but you're still holding on with all of these feelings ! You're hurt but since you love them so much you're letting them know that even though they are distancing themself with you, the love is still there on their half anyway!!

    This is a beautiful song. It means that you don't care about us, our love etc. But i'll always care, even if you don't. I still care about you, i still love you dearly. I care about our trust, even though you don't care that much. We used to be so inlove, but now you don't care anymore at all.

    This song really speaks to me. It talks about the feeling that one gets in a relationship that just can't be described in words, that feeling of being deserted, no matter how much you try to convince yourself that the other half loves you, your just not convinced that they care as much as you do. The lyrics of this song is not directly related to cheating with someone else or asking for a divorce, instead it just talks about that dark lonely feeling of being under-appreciated. Amazing, queen b you really are a legend.

    To me this song is like a friend who doesn't care about you at all. Who you thought you were special to but apparently not. But, even though they don't care about you and probably never will, you don't stop caring for them. Because you love them in the light and dark..

    I believe in this song, it's talking about how theres always that one relationship where sometimes things do get rocky and the other half tends to slip away a little bit. Bu tno matter the circumstance the one who actually does care in the relationship will still go far for the one he or she loves even if the other does not meet that person half way
